In 2020, the due date for your dog registration payment has been extended to 31 August (normally 31 July). Holders of a responsible dog owner status must pay by 31 July (normally 31 June) to receive a discount.
To register a new dog or a dog that has never been registered, please contact us(external link) directly to set up your dog registration or advise us online.
To avoid additional penalties, dog owners should register their dogs prior to 31 July each year. Please note that for 2020 the due dates have been extended to 31 July (responsible dog owner status discounted fees) and 31 August (standard fees and non discounted fees).
An infringement notice, which carries a $300 penalty, may be issued where the dog is found to be unregistered. This infringement fee does not include the dog's registration fee. Dogs may also be seized and impounded, and you would then be liable for release fees as well as the dog registration fee.
